Letter: Wells Carnival - Racial 'political correctness' has gone too far

Do you agree with this letter to the editor?
Was this carnival cart racist?
I really get sick of people trying to attach "racial stereotyping" to anything and everything in the 21st century.
Where has our balanced thinking gone? I could be wrong but I don't remember The Globe's excellent carnival float sporting a neon sign saying "beware – all black people are like this".
Is Sophie really suggesting that a cowboy themed float would have us all believe that all cowboys wear makeup and dance? And I bet there have been many Asian-themed floats throughout the years, but nobody really believes all Asians wear wide-rimmed pointed hats and have Fu Manchu facial hair.
The only thing that racial stereotypes such things are the brains of narrow-minded people such as Sophie Pollard.
